    Its been in the high 20s up here outside, but it gets to around 36 in this room. I can sleep adequately though if I have my fan on full blast. Air conditioning would be nice though :).

    I've had a bit of fun with dual monitors before, but I don't use such a setup normally.

    To be honest, I think I'd rather have a larger & higher resolution monitor than dual monitors.

    There isn't anything wrong with my current system, but I wouldn't mind future-proofing myself a little.
